Goodness, this has been an exciting week for film! Shailene Woodley nabbed a lead role, Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell are collaborating, Christina Applegate is in talks for a reboot, Tom Cruise may play a famous TV man, and Ryan Gosling has added Saoirse Ronan to his directorial debut. See all those and more in this week's biggest casting news!
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis brought their PDA courtside last night to watch as the LA Lakers took on the Phoenix Suns at the Staples Center. The usually press-shy couple cuddled up and laughed during the game, which the home team won 91-85. It wasn't all overt affection for Mila and Ashton, though — at one point, they held up a piece of paper to share a private moment. Their night out comes in the middle of a fun week. Ashton turned 35 on Feb. 7, and tomorrow is, of course, Valentine's Day. Tonight, Mila will attend the LA debut of Oz The Great and Powerful — and we'll be LIVE from the premiere! The fun starts tonight at 9:30 p.m. EST/6:30 p.m. PST right here on POPSUGAR. Ashton is expected to attend as well.
Ashton and Mila were joined at last night's matchup by Will Ferrell, who stole the show dressed as an usher with the name tag "Ted Vagina." Rocking his Anchorman 2 beard, Will made headlines by escorting Shaquille O'Neal out of the stadium after a supposed infraction from Shaq.
David Beckham sat courtside at the Lakers game in LA last night. He and pal Dave Gardner watched the home team lose against the Orlando Magic, but David was still full of smiles. He was greeted by players Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard and also signed his autograph for a young fan. David switched to the spectator role following an emotional sports event of his own. On Saturday, David played his last game with the LA Galaxy. They won the MLS Cup championship with support from David's whole family. Brooklyn, Romeo, and Cruz were all on hand to cheer on their dad and they celebrated together after the match with Victoria, who returned home from the UK with Harper later in the evening.
The Spike Guys Choice Awards brought together some of the hottest men and sexiest ladies in TV, film, and sports in LA tonight. The show airs Monday at 9 p.m. EST with stars like Mila Kunis, Emma Stone, Channing Tatum, and Adam Sandler participating in the fun. Justin Timberlake accepted the entertainer of the year award from Jeremy Renner while Rock of Ages costars Malin Akerman, in Emporio Armani, and Julianne Hough, wearing a sexy full-length Michael Kors, took a break from press and let loose with the guys. Other Summer blockbuster stars were also on hand for the celebration including Magic Mike's Matthew McConaughey, The Dark Knight Rises's director Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale, and That's My Boy funny men Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg.
Athletes Kobe Bryant and Aaron Rodgers proudly accepted top honors and joined the crowd in applauding NFL hopeful Eric LeGrand, who was paralyzed from a neck injury, during his acceptance of this year's Guysman Trophy. Engaged couple Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell took the stage to present Emma, wearing Versace, with a pair of golden antlers for her win as Guys Choice hot and funny actress. Emma's adding another statue to her collection tomorrow at the MTV Movie Awards. She's expected to be on hand as a presenter, in addition to taking home the first-ever trailblazer award. We'll be there, too, so follow us on Twitter and Instagram for updates and photos from the red carpet!
London's Leicester Square played host to Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg and Eva Mendes at The Other Guys UK premiere last night. The cast signed autographs for waiting fans despite the rainy weather, and were joined by celebs like Brian Dowling at the screening and afterparty at Chinawhite. Check out some footage from the premiere after the jump! Eva wore a gorgeous green dress on the blue carpet, while Mark said only Eva would get him back in his undies for a Calvin Klein ad campaign. Will said Eva stalked him after they finished filming, although there was no word on how his marriage to Mark is going.

Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell took The Other Guys to the Gold Coast for the Australian premiere yesterday. They were joined by Eva Mendes for their NYC premiere, but she skipped this trip and left it to her male costars to show off their successful cop comedy. Mark and Will spoke about their hilarious fight scenes while doing promo in New York, and revealed at Comic-Con that they've taken their working relationship to the next level. They played a friendly round of golf at the beginning of their overseas trip, and Will was there when Mark received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame last month. Will you see the film?

Eva Mendes looked gorgeous in her light dress and bow belt as she posed with costars Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell at the premiere of The Other Guys last night in New York. At the afterparty she brightened things up in a more colourful dress as she mingled with costars and guests. While they were at Comic-Con Will and Mark revealed to Pop US that they're married, although Will said his wife didn't know. She was his date to the premiere last night though, so it looks like she's forgiven him!
San Diego was the place to be this weekend for Comic-Con. We saw that Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds were there on Saturday for their Green Lantern panel, and his wife, Scarlett Johansson, later appeared with her Captain America costars including Robert Downey, Jr. Kellan Lutz struck a pose at the Syfy party, following a trip to the Wired cafe, while his Eclipse costar, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World's Anna Kendrick also attended. Meanwhile, Vanessa Hudgens partied with her fellow Sucker Punch actresses.
Pregnant former Heroes star Ali Larter really showed off her baby bump at a Resident Evil: Afterlife press conference, while True Blood's Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer were there on Friday to talk about their series, including the future of their characters' relationship.
